April 21 marked the inaugural Common Reading Book Reveal Party hosted by First Year Experience. Attendees were provided with a brief history of the Common Reading Program, information on learning outcomes and the committee/book selection process announced the 2015-2016 selection: The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore.

The Other Wes Moore chronicles the life of two men, both named Wes Moore, with vastly different fates. One is a Rhodes Scholar and White House Fellow while the other is serving a life sentence for murder. Over the course of the school year, students in SLS 1501 and Honors symposium will have the book infused into their curriculum, and events around the theme of the book will occur.

Join First Year Experience on October 27, 2015, at 4:30 p.m. in the Pegasus Ballroom to hear from Wes Moore himself as he addresses students and how they can make their lives a success.
